The little match girl by dies of drug overdose in the back alleys of Hollywood - the boulevard of broken dreams.

lyrics

Little Matchgirl
=============

and on these quiet streets I'm the peddler of dreams
and by the glitter of nightlights I lay them in carts
and in these dark alley ways of secrets I hold in me
will you look sir? just for a moment

ditch the lonely fights
come out like the rest
I'll give these secret smiles
you're my knight of the night
and I'm the weaver of sins
if you will just spare the dime
these scarlet greed is..
almost a crime

light me a match
I'm your catch for the night
and then you know you know you know it's true that
I drive the blues

Creases on pillows
I'm the willow to your bellows
and could you truly truly truly truly
make me a star

how this dark is a veil
it hides all my years
and all the secret fears
of your ravenous leers
and how they grow on you
the smell the valour of streets
could you look sir just for a moment

we are the widow of shadows
the dismembered willows
the roller coaster of lights
as we chase a dream
and will you buy me a night
so I can light another match
will you buy sir just for a moment

light me a match
I'm your catch for the night
and then you know you know you know it's true that
I drive the blues

Creases on pillows
I'm the willow to your bellows
and could you truly truly truly truly
buy me a dream

one more before it goes
one more for the road
one more before I blow
one more one more


light me a match
I'm your catch for the night
and then you know you know you know it's true that
I drive the blues

Creases on pillows
I'm the willow to your bellows
and could you truly truly truly truly
remember me?
your little match girl
remember me
you little wretch girl
remember me?
